Achieve requests a grant to support collaborative development by New York, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts (with up to three other interested states) of model curricula and instructional tools aligned with the Common Core State Standards and the PARCC assessment consortium’s content framework. Achieve will facilitate the development of these tools and support a process to review the quality and rigor of the instructional units and their alignment with the Common Core standards and PARCC assessments. This work will leverage the states’ Race to the Top funding for curricular materials.
